Default Need help quick on shipping ammo

I ran into what I think is a deal on some LC 54 in stripper clips and bandos. I'm out of town and will be flying home Friday morning. I am getting conflicting information on the rules for carrying taking this ammo home with me on the plane. One call to the airline said I could take in the the checked baggage if it was in a wood or metal box with a lock on it. Another told me I could carry it on if it was in a wood or metal box with a lock on it. In either case I have to declare it. I have 240 rounds. Anyone have any advise???
BTW the bando is marked LC 13837 anyone know what that means? $46.99 per 120 round in old style stripper clips in the bando with cardboard.

I don't know anything about airline regulations regarding ammunition but when security check stations will confiscate dummy cartridge key chains and pocket knives I wouldn't even try it.

Most ( but not all) airlines allow ammo in checked baggage I have never been required to keep it in a separate locked case. I just know you can't keep it in the same container / bag as a fire arm.

Call your airline and ask...

Airlines make their own the rules about their airline.

Baggage, is the usual answer.

IMHO, don't even think about "carry on."

Thanks everyone. I found that UPS will ship it for around $17. At that price, I'm not going to bother with trying to take it home on the plane. BTW, the conflicting info I was getting was from different persons at the airline in question.

Default Guns and Firearms on a Plane (TSA Regs)

Don't even think about carry on. You have access to the Internet, go to the TSA site ( http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtrav...d-items.shtm#6) and they have posted what you can and can't fly with and how it must be packed. Print it out and bring it with you when you check into the airport in case someone doesn't have the correct word. Of course the airline can refuse to let it on the plane but at least you know the Federal rules.
